Tile spacers are plastic objects either made in T or crossed shapes that are placed between the tiles to maintain a constant and consistent spacing between the tiles. The spacer creates a gap that is filled by grout, which would finally give a symmetrical finish to the surface.
- Tile spacers are available in the market from width sizes ranging from 2mm to 4mm.
- Lightweight and sturdy plastic is the primary material for tile spacer production.
- The selection of tile spacers depends on the personal preference and the standards.
- Proper tile spacing with the help of tile spacers allows free movement of tile to consider the stress relief.
- In general, the spacers used for walls takes a minimum value of 2mm, and the floor spacers make a size of 3mm.
At first, place the tiles on the prepared surface with a layer of adhesive. Now place the spacers at each corner of the tile. Place the tile spacers directly on the tile corners and push the tile together until the spacer entirely holds to each edge of the tile. This process helps to ensure an equal gap between each tile.
